Resident Evil Village is not even released yet, but there is already new info out there about the release date of another Resident Evil game: Resident Evil Outrage. Outrage is the sequel to "Resident Evil Revelations 2". Thanks to leaks we now also have an idea about the game's release date.
Back in November 2020, there were first leaks about a new Resident Evil game, which is only known as "Outrage" so far. Resident Evil Outrage is supposed to be the third part of the "Resident Evil Revelations" series and features Rebecca Chambers as the main character. New details about the game have been revealed shortly before the release of Village.... Coincidence? We hardly think so.
What Is the Story of Resident Evil Outrage About?
Not much is known about the story of Outrage yet. However, since it is the sequel to Resident Evil Revelations 2, we strongly suspect that the game will go in a similar direction. The Revelations series was mostly based on the old strengths of Resident Evil and had two playable main characters.
So far, the only thing known about Outrage is that Rebecca Chambers will play one of the main roles. Her first appearance was in the very first Resident Evil from 1996, and she was already featured as a main character in Resident Evil Zero. The insider Dusk Golem, who is responsible for the leaks, hinted that he already knows about the other protagonists as well. They are supposed to be familiar characters:
Yes. I first heard about Rev 3 in 2017 that it'd star Rebecca, and I've been updated several times over the years its a Rebecca game still. I'm semi aware of who the 2nd & 3rd protagonists are too, both returning characters, but these lips are zipped for now. https://t.co/jkrqepL93F— AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem (@AestheticGamer1) February 14, 2021
Which Platforms Will Resident Evil Outrage Be Released On?
According to Dusk Golem, Resident Evil Outrage will have a time exclusive release on the Nintendo Switch. After that, it will be released for all other platforms as well. However, it is not known how long Outrage will be a Nintendo Switch exclusive.
Timed exclusive, it's releasing on everything and is a cross-gen game. https://t.co/ylRtd8310T— AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem (@AestheticGamer1) February 14, 2021
When Is the Release Date For Resident Evil Outrage?
An exact release date is not known yet. However, the time frame has already been narrowed down considerably. Dusk Golem still believes in a release at the end of 2021. Two Resident Evil games in one year?! That would almost be overkill. Alternatively, a release date in early 2022 is also possible.
Gah, I stupidly still think we're in 2020 with 2021 next year, switch Resident Evil Outrage to late 2021, early 2022. https://t.co/jA19FWjy5i— AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem (@AestheticGamer1) February 14, 2021
Why Is It Called Outrage Instead Of Revelations 3?
Since this is largely unconfirmed information, it should of course be taken with a grain of salt. But in itself, it all sounds very realistic. It also raises the question of why the new Resident Evil is traded under the title Outrage and not as Revelations 3. Maybe because they want to cause "outrage" with it? I don't think so...
It's possible that Outrage is just a working title for the new Resident Evil game. Or it could indicate that the Revelations series will continue to develop and break new ground. Allegedly, more work time and budget will be invested in Outrage than in the previous games. So we can expect a more than worthy successor that doesn't have to hide from Resident Evil: Village.
